4.0 out of 5 stars Among the best that I have read April 23 2002
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I am addicted to Dragon Lance novels and Mary Herbert, in my opinion, is one of the best Dragon Lance authors that I have ever seen. The clearness of her prose makes her characters seem as if they are sitting right next to you as you read her tale. You will be left wondering why things are happening and awaiting with baited breath the next turn of the page. For Dragon Lance addicts, like myself, this is one of the best Dragon Lance books that I have seen in a long long time. The only reason that I have not given it five stars is because Mary Herbert is no Margret Weiss. She could stand to learn a bit from the acknowledged master of fantasy literature.
If you have not read any Dragon Lance before this one, go back and read Dragons of Autumn Twilight and the rest of the Chronicles and Legends sub-series first. The new reader will be a bit confused by the presence of the dragons and the references to Caramon, Tika and Palin. Needless to say this is not an entry book into the Dragon Lance saga.
For those of you are mildly interested in the Dragon Lance saga this one will hook you as it did me. Please be sure to have read the Chronicles, Legends, Dragons of a Summer Flame and the Dragons of a New Age trilogy before you read this one. This one will convert most people to addicts like me.
Now for a small snippet of the tale. The town is Sanction where Linsha Majere has been assigned by the Solmanic Nights to the Clandestine Circle, which has intern sent her to be Lord Bight's body guard. There appears to be something fishy about the governor of the town. Before she realizes what is happening, the governor is not the only one that needs to be saved. Slowly she works her way deeper and deeper into a wired mystery that is Lord Bight.

The story takes place in the big and hot city of Sanction, with Linsha Majere as the main character. Linsha Majere works for a secret Solamnian organisation called The Clandestine Circle, with the purpose to spy on Sanction's governor, Hogan Bight.
Linsha Majere becomes drastically one of Hogan Bights bodyguards. Linsha's job for the Circle, is to spy on the governor and find the source for his power.
The setting is (as described above) set in Sanction, a city with enemies from every corner. Among those enemies are The Solamnic Knights, The Dark Knights, the Legion of Steel, and a mysterious plague, which threatens to destroy the whole population of Sanction.
The whole story is told from the perspective of Linsha Majere, who has her own personal problems. Love worries, among other things... The best thing in the book is when Linsha discovers Durnes betrayal, after having spent several nights in his bed. I also liked the scene were Bight and Linsha meets the great dragon Onysablet (also called Sable).
I think this is one of the better Dragonlance books. It served lots of intrigue, mystery and a well structured plot with lots of depth. This was indeed a most enjoyable book, that should fit every Dragonlance fans expectations, and also the fantasy freaks demands.

4.0 out of 5 stars Who works for who? July 16 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Another good informative DL book, I seem to be reading a lot of those lately. This story involved quite a few elements, including a plague, the Knights of Solamnia 'spying' on Hogan Bight, the Knights of Takhisis, and the Legion of Steel. The Legion of Steel stuck in the middle of this information battle while trying to help the common people. The Knights of Takhisis trying to overrun Sanction and kill Lord Bight. And last Hogan Bight himself, the mysteriously powerful Lord Governor of Sanction.
Stuck in the middle of all this chaos is the Knight of the Rose Linsha Majere (daughter of Palin and Usha). Linsha was an interesting character, but I was saddened to find that her problem solving skills were so low. The only part of this novel that I didn't like was that Linsha seemed not able to put two and two together while some of the mysteries were very obvious through out the whole book.
But that damage is easily repaired by finally getting to see the secrets of Hogan Bight. The very cool Lord Governor of Sanction that can control the Volcanoes around the city of Sanction and loves the city and it's people more than anything else in his life (except maybe a good swim).
Mary Herbert has turned into one of my favorite DL authors, right at the top with Margaret Weis, Tracy Hickman, and Richard A. Knaak. I can't wait for her next DL novel (title Dragon's Bluff I believe) to come out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Following the bloodline Dec 6 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
As much as War of Souls follows the giant sweeping epic arcs of Krynn, it is good to be able to watch what the children of the original Dragonlance Chronicles heroes are doing... or in this case one particular grandchild.
That in and of itself does not make for a good book. But what did make this book good was a good solid storyline, interesting characters, and enough intrigue to keep you going from chapter to chapter.
I don't mean to spoil anything but not all details get resolved, but it does leave enough open for a true sequel (rather than the following Crossroads novels which are separate stories) that I would be very much inclined to read.
A few of the details are easy to figure out on your own in this book, and there are a few details you want to slap the main character for not seeing. But to be able to read through the boatload of events going on in one city existing in the location in Ansalon that screams 'Please Gods! Destroy us now!' is very much the treat.
